Strawberry Shortcake Cookie Cups

I’m officially declaring it the summer of the cookie cup!! I absolutely love my S’mores Cookie Cups, so I decided it was time to make another version with a different summer favorite, strawberry shortcake. These Strawberry Shortcake Cookie Cups are perfectly chewy & delicious sugar cookies filled with fresh strawberries and whipped cream! When I bite into one I am honestly brought right back to my childhood. They are easy, absolutely scrumptious, and so freaking cute!!

What you need for these Strawberry Shortcake Cookie Cups!

These cookie cups are actually super easy and don’t require many ingredients at all! They are also definitely a healthier version of your typical strawberry shortcake. They are gluten free, can be made dairy free if you use dairy free whipped cream, and are made with this baking sweetener which is an alternative to traditional sugar.

  • Purecane Baking Sweetener: This baking sweetener is non-gmo, calorie free, and made naturally from sugar cane! It is a great alternative to traditional sugar that worked deliciously in these cookies, but if you don’t have it or can’t access it … it is a 1:1 replacement to sugar. Which means you can just go right ahead and use regular sugar!
  • Almond Flour: These cookie cups are gluten free because of the use of almond flour! It is without a doubt one of my favorite gluten free flours. It adds a great taste and soft texture to these cookies!
  • Refined Coconut Oil: Make sure to use refined coconut oil in these cookie cups!! Unrefined coconut oil tastes like coconuts, which will make your cookies taste like coconuts too.
  • Egg: This recipe contains one egg to bind!
  • Strawberries & Whipped Cream: You most definitely cannot have strawberry shortcake cookie cups without either of these ingredients!! I’m pretty sure we all know this, but the strawberry, cream, and cookie just taste so delicious together. You can also use dairy free whipped cream and these cookie cups would be completely dairy free!
  • Lastly Vanilla Extract and Salt for flavor, and Baking Powder for a little rise.

Notes

  • I recommend waiting to add the strawberries and whipped cream until you are ready to serve!  Before that you can just store in a container on the counter, but after the strawberries and whipped cream are added store in the fridge to keep as fresh as possible.
